New Online at FDAP.org (and elsewhere)?
been online for just over one year now and it's time to
highlight a few of the newer tools available at FDAP.org.
Brand new, of course, is the Blakely page where you
can find a myriad of resources relating to Blakely v.
Washington, such as news, articles, sample briefs, and
links to Blakely-related cases and off-site resources.
provides resources for juvenile delinquency practitioners
challenging CYA commitments on direct appeal or filing petitions
to modify (Welf. & Inst. Code § 779) in the juvenile
updated a number of forms
so that rules numbers conform with the new (Jan. 1, 2004)
rules of court. (Note NOA forms still have out-of-date rule
number citations; they'll be updated when the Judicial Council
amends the forms.)
We now have a link to a habeas form that can be used in
the Eastern District of California. The E.D. does not have
its own 2254 form, but uses the generic
form from the Admin. Office of the U.S. Courts. (Note:
this is a fillable, but not saveable, PDF document.) Also,
the E.D. uses its own IFP application and filing instructions.
Unfortunately, district-specific IFP forms and instructions
are not yet available online.
A few developments off-site are worth mentioning.
